Alpha Seeker Strategy – Using Volatility to Manage Risk
Embedded in U.S. equity market volatility is valuable information that can be used to estimate near-term market price-movement. The recent market disruption provides a live test of this thesis. The Cboe Volatility Index® (VIX) and VIX futures provide a window into estimates of coming volatility on dual time horizons, such estimates often have inverse correlation to market price-movement. Tactical exposure to market beta is a risk management tool that seeks to lessen the impact of market down-turns and enhance performance during market rallies.
LHA Alpha Seeker Strategy monitors VIX and determines when it is time to increase or decrease net exposure to the equity market. Meet Mike Thompson, CFA, and co-Manager of the LHA Alpha Seeker Strategy on April 11th at 4:00 EST as he walks through the benefits of the strategy and his review process.
